Today’s spotlight: Jane Dobbs

Title: President and CEO, Canyon State Credit Union

Background: Dobbs has more than 30 years of financial services leadership.

Best decision: “In order to broaden my bandwidth of skills and knowledge, I made a conscious decision mid-career to move laterally within a large organization. Doing so, gave me the additional experience and exposure I needed to into a senior level position.”

Essence of leadership: “Humility. I believe having humility allows a leader to say ‘I’m sorry,’ ‘I made a mistake’ or ‘I don’t know’ and retain the respect of the team and peers.”

Surprising fact: “I am a master gardener and love to grow vegetables in the desert.”
